Hamnet & Judith
By Maggi O’Farrell
This historical novel dives back to 16th-century Stratford-Upon-Avon and tells the true but little-known story of William Shakespeare’s twin children, Hamnet and Judith.

The Moment of Tenderness
By Madeleine L’Engle
In the 1940s and 1950s, between her college years and publishing her legendary A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L’Engle wrote short story after short story about topics such as friendship, faith, isolation, and more. But it wasn’t until after her death in 2007 that her granddaughter discovered the old forgotten manuscripts and saw to it that they be posthumously published and shared with L’Engle’s devoted readers.
